We have been working on narrative elements this last marking period and are just about ready for our Embedded Assessment.
I asked this question of my students to help them realize that their actions need to match who they are. This led to our study of character traits nicely!
Then we listed our own character traits on our own "ships".
I am also planning on giving away tickets to students who demonstrate their positive character traits on their ships. Once students have saved 20 tickets, they can get a treat from my "store". I have been inspired by the scratch off and QR code tickets at Head Over Heels for Teaching so maybe I will see how I can incorporate them too!
Since we are working on focusing the students on their words and deeds, I'm going to connect Random Acts of Kindness to the students being able to get their "ships" to their destinations.
So I made these cards that list various acts of kindness that students will be asked to do instead of saying or doing the not-so-nice things they have been trying to get away with. I also hope this sparks some motivation to do positive things in general!
